How to get Destined Death in Elden Ring

 

Elden Ring Destined Death Guide

  • This is a Unique Skill
  • FP Cost: 40
  • This Skill is not Chargeable
  • When triggered, the weapon art causes the user to do a right-to-left horizontal slash (hitbox 1), after which the blade is stabbed into the ground (hitbox 2), which then releases the blade vortex after a brief delay (hitbox 3).
  • Reduces enemy max HP by 10% for 15 seconds.
  • Saps enemy HP for 2 seconds
  • Damage scales with weapon AR and deals split physical and holy damage. The amount of physical and holy damage depends on stat investment, with Faith increasing Holy damage and Strength and Dexterity increasing physical damage.
  • Debuff stacks with either Black Blade incantation OR Blade of Death but NOT both. See Buffs and Debuffs for more information on stacking debuffs.
  • Destined Death does NOT trigger Winged Sword Insignia, Rotten Winged Sword Insignia, Millicent's Prosthesis or Thorny Cracked Tear.

 

Note: This Skill was changed with Patch 1.07 as follows:

  • Motion speed has been increased.
  • Duration of the effect that reduces maximum HP has been extended.

    • Finally made Strfth build... does this **** stop projectiles? The whirly thing, third part of Ash of War. I used it while fighting Black Blade in front of Gurranq, and when it did the backstep + vertical slice wave, the projectile got destroyed by it. I'm still not sure whether it was just terrain issue, and it stopped on some small random rock in front of me, or did it actually eat the projectile.

        of course, like all remembrance weapons, execpt for the sacred relic sword, this weapons does pitiful damage when you wield, it but when maliketh wields it you get annihilated.

          Love this WA. Surprisingly effective again gank squads in PVP. Usually kills summons and sometimes even hosts if they're twinking. Just be sure you're nice and close so they'll get caught by at least one of the hits.

            Has anyone found out if this WA can be parried with Blasphemous Claw? (i probably won't need the information for anything since i don't play PVP, but it'd be fun to know)

              This weapon skill, despite dealing holy damage, is surprisingly effective vs Elden Beast. That sap HP mechanic really helps when it's HP is overinflated due to 2 summons and conservative pure physical weapons just tickle him.

                "Destined Death does NOT trigger Winged Sword Insignia, Rotten Winged Sword Insignia, Millicent's Prosthesis or Thorny Cracked Tear." Is wrong. I tested it with rotten winged and used the weapon art, and got an AR increase. I dunno about the other Talimsnas or the cracked tear, but it´s probably the same, but needs further testing

                  Using this in NG+ on 1.07 and for some reason the ash of war is not active. My character now does a front flip slam. Not sure what is causing this

                    This should be a 20 FP/15 FP double cast with the horizontal/vertical attack being the first part and the multi-slice being the second. As it is, if you whiff this at all in PvP it's incredibly punishable by any spell in the game due to how much time you're locked in the animation.

                      Damage on this WA is quite low until you get Maliketh's upgraded to max, and have enough invested into faith. Caught three players in it as a RL70 +5 during an invasion, and including the max % HP reduction it maybe did 1/3rd to 1/4th of their HP at most.

                      • Anonymous

                        With 50 str, 32 faith, and a +6 Upgrade Level in PvP, this of course reduced the max HP of enemies somewhat decently, but that's essentially all it did really. Otherwise the damage was really low. Would not consider it for lower level PvP.

                          Since Destined Death, according to the lore, is supposed to end the rebirth cycle of anyone in the Lands Between, I think it would be a pretty cool option to be able to make Destined Death permanently remove any enemies killed in the overworld with it during any playthrough of NG+ and onward. (But just a toggle option). That would be really cool/helpful and accurate to the lore.

                            I beat Maliketh a day or two ago but I'm not sure what to do with the remembrance. His black blade is a nice looking sword and the incantation looks pretty sweet as well. If they were anything other than holy damage I'd get one of Enia. The point is can remebrances be traded?

                              Sure? Yesterday I did some tests and had different numbers with and without it.

                                I just tried (dunno if its a bug a bugfix or a nerf) to stack Blade of Death and Destined Death and they DIDN'T STACK the max hp debuff. I still didn't try Black Blade and Destined Death but i guess those too work since you did the build around it

                                • Anonymous

                                  What is the point of the debuff if any kind of damage reduces a health bar anyways? Not every boss can heal

                                  • Anonymous

                                    Whoever wrote that it doesn't stack with the Black Blade Incantation was incorrect. All three "black blade" debuffs can stack with each other, but 2 stacks per enemy is the max amount.

                                      Can anyone confirm if the weapon art scales only with faith or if it scales with both faith and strength?
